COVID-19 in Puerto Vallarta
On Wednesday, July 28, 2021, Puerto Vallarta recorded 223 infections in a single day and five new deaths were recorded. There has been a total of 1909 reported cases in the past seven days, compared to 1,533 cases in the seven days prior, for an increase of 25% compared to the previous seven-day period.
Puerto Vallarta currently reports 1,719 active cases of COVID-19, these being people who have been infected over the past 14-days. The number of active cases in Puerto Vallarta exceeds that of Guadalajara, the second-largest city in Mexico, which has 1,356 active cases.
Hospital Occupancy in Puerto Vallarta
Puerto Vallarta Naval Hospital is reporting 72% occupancy of beds for treating COVID-19 patients after nearly two weeks at 100. The local IMSS Hospital is reporting 78% occupancy in COVID-19 beds, and the General Hospital in Puerto Vallarta is reporting 88% occupancy. These occupancy rates are only in beds designated for the care of COVID-19. As occupancy increases, hospitals add more beds to their COVID units. A lower number of occupancy is likely due to new beds being designated for COVID-19, not fewer patients being treated.
Bars and Clubs will close in Puerto Vallarta
Bars and clubs in Jalisco, including Puerto Vallarta, have been ordered to close for the entire month of August due to an increase in COVID-19 cases.
The governor reiterated that the priority of the health board is the return to classes, for that reason they must “stop in a forceful way the disorder that has been generated in the bars and clubs.”
“Education comes first before the party,” said the state leader when announcing the new measures. Read full story
